This weekend was truly a fairy tale for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. With the world watching, the couple tied the knot in front of 600 guests at Windsor Castle. Now, just two days later, Kensington Palace has released three official photographs from the Royal Wedding.
In the first of three photos posted to Instagram, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are joined by their families. To the bride’s left is her mother, Doria Ragland, along with her in-laws, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, commonly known as Prince William and Kate Middleton, and members of the wedding party. On the groom’s side, you see Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Harry's father, Prince Charles. and step-mother, Camilla Parker Bowles, along with more members of the wedding party.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day,” the caption reads.
In the second photo, the bride and groom sit with their adorable bridal party, including bridesmaids Princess Charlotte, Florence van Custem, Remi Litt, Rylan Litt, Ivy Mulroney, and Zalie Warren. The page boys, Prince George, Jasper Dyer, Brian Mulroney, and John Mulroney, also sat for the photo. Everyone is all smiles, leaving us to wonder how many attempts it took to get this great shot.
The final shot is a beautiful black and white portrait of the Duke and Duchess, who is still in her custom Givenchy ceremony gown and tiara, of Sussex. They sit together on the east terrace of Windsor Castle looking genuinely happy and in love.
“They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the UK, Commonwealth, and around the world,” writes The Palace.
The official portraits were taken by Alexi Lubomirski, a fashion photographer, who also photographed the ceremony on Saturday, as well as the couple’s infamous engagement photos in November.
